While we all know at least a few people who refused to let the pandemic put a stop to their vacation plans, most people put their major vacation plans on hold.  Instead, they opted for a Maine staycation.  They took day trips to the beach, went camping, spent the day exploring Portland's Old Port, etc.

Fortunately, as the vaccine rollout continues, and we build up natural herd immunity, the world is slowly getting back to normal.

Before too long, we'll be going to concerts, seeing movies in theaters, and walking around stores without masks.

Time to start planning that much needed spring getaway.  After the last year, you deserve to have a little fun in the sun.

If Florida is your destination of choice, you could save big (money and time) by flying Frontier Airlines out of Portland.

According to the Portland Press Herald, the airline put out a press release explaining that they'll be running a limited number of direct Portland-Tampa flights between April 13th and May 11th.  The flights will be offered Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.

Round-trip tickets will cost between $213 and $353, depending on when you choose to fly.

So, you and your special someone could spend an extended weekend hanging out in sunny Florida.  You fly out of Portland on Thursday, take advantage of the beaches, amazing food, and bars before flying back to Maine on Sunday.

Get all the details and book your flight at the Frontier Airlines website.
